Day 22

Its been about 3 weeks so far. Everything is going well in terms of side effects. My acne doesnt really look any different, but atleast I havent had an initial breakout. I have noticed that my hair and face gets less oily. I really want to up my dosage because im still taking 50 mgs a day and i think i need to go higher. My derm appointment in aug 6 so i will ask about upping the dosage then. I had a consultation with my gyno today and it turns out that i have to get my dermoid cyst on my left o

Day 15

Its been about 2 weeks since starting spiro. I am taking 50mg (25mgs twice a day). So far I haven't had any initial breakout or anything. I think its working, but I definitely need to wait it out longer. Haven't been bothered by any side effects (except maybe my boobs got a little bigger). The one thing I am disappointed in is that it hasn't really worked to shrink this one monster cyst on my left cheek that I have had for over 2 months now....Maybe I just need to give it more time, but I have a

Day 11

I haven't had any bad breakouts yet (which isn't completely weird for me because I only get like one huge cyst a month anyway).

Day 5

So its day 5 of spiro. So far nothing has really changed. I have started on 25 mg. My derm wants me to start slow so that my body can adjust to the pills. His directions were to take 25 mg for the first 10 days, then alternate 25 mg on even days and 50 mg on odd days for the next 10 days, then 50 mgs per day for the next 10 days. Hopefully going this slow will decrease chances of having an initial breakout. I should add I'm also using topical erythromycin and topical sulfacetamide solution (both

Background

Hey everyone- I wanted to document my experience with spironolactone, but first I want to give a little background info about myself. I have had perfectly clear skin my entire life, until I turned 19, and started breaking out in cysts on my cheeks. I'm 20 now, so its been about a year of this hell. I don't usually have a lot of cysts and one time, but the cysts I do get don't go away and they are huge! My derm thinks it could be related to an ovarian cyst that was found on my left ovary th
